Dodging the Roadkill: Old School Respect

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I will admit, I’m not an “old school” biker. By no fault of my own, I discovered motorcycles late in life. Now that I have, it’s my only regret about this whole journey, and that’s I didn’t get started when I was younger.

I’ve been riding since January 2016. Since I started, I’ve tried to absorb EVERYTHING I possibly can about this culture and this experience. Through the people I’ve met, and the friends I’ve made, I’ve learned so much and become a better biker because of it.

I follow many blogs and social media groups pertaining to bikers and motorcycles. Something I’ve noticed from time to time is how some old school bikers want to make fun of “baggers,” or bikers who ride newer bikes that may have a few more “whistles and bells” than what they ride.

My Two Cents: Celebrities and Politics

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement.  Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember.  Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent. 

Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians.Hollywood Sign «Read the rest of this article»

Some Unusual Situations can occur going to the Movies

 

Clarksville, TN – A group of friends–several couples–had been out to dinner. They decided to go to the movies. After having been settled in their seats for quite some time, one of the ladies decided to retire to repair her make-up. She began walking, face towards the screen and scooting sideways towards the aisle.

Several gentlemen rose to let her by. Unfortunately for one of them, he noticed that his zipper had somehow been left unzipped. As he rose to let her by, he stood and simultaneously zipped. «Read the rest of this article»

Kim Edmondson: Who Am I?

 

Les MiserablesClarksville, TN – Just in case you are wondering, I am not a big fan of movies. My husband, Chris, on the other hand, is a huge fan of movies. If I watch a movie, I am pretty picky about the content. He loves movies of all types and topics. I feel I could be accomplishing so much during the 2 hours of time that passes as I sit watching a movie. To him, watching a movie is a time to escape, relax and hang-out.

So, when we find a movie we both enjoy, it is a reason to celebrate!

Recently, Chris went to see Les Misérables, and when he came home giving it a glowing review, I knew I had to see it. And I have, twice! The film did not disappoint! «Read the rest of this article»
